Aziz Ansah is confident Heartland can preserve their narrow lead ahead of Saturday's decider in the African Champions League final in Lubumbashi.

The Nigerian side play against TP Mazembe tomorrow in the second leg of the final.Heartland came from behind to win the first leg 2-1 in Owerri last Sunday.

Despite needing a draw to lift their first continental title, Heartland's Aziz Ansah admits that Saturday's fixture will be cagey one with the DR Congo side needing a 1-0 victory to see them win the competition.

TP Mazembe's squad arrived in Lubumbashi on Thursday evening after spending most of the week in Harare, to avoid pressure from fans and the media. Ahead of the big game, the Ghana international says his side are rather calm with the pressure now on their opponents who would be playing in front of their fans.

"I must say we made things a bit difficult for ourselves in the first game. We were playing at home and there was pressure."But after going down, we showed our quality and came back to win the game."The job can now be finished in Lubumbashi. They (Mazembe) will be under pressure since they need to open up.

"We can exploit that and make things rather difficult for them. All we need to do is to play to our strengths and stick together as a team," Aziz Ansah told www.ghanafa.org.

"I want to win it (Champions League) and we (Heartland) are all fighting for the same thing. It would be special to lift it."The winners of the African Champions League will play at the Club World Cup in December.
